Engaging Activities at a Michigan Family Vacation Resort

Snow Stars

The Snow Stars program is designed to teach young children to ski. Our children’s program instructors use the latest in teaching techniques to permit your child to progress to their highest ability. We know that children need to have fun first and that each child’s skiing development is unique and depends on experience, individual abilities and interests.

We encourage 3 year olds to be enrolled in the 1/2 day program only or the Ski & Play program. Please note that program enrollment closes thirty minutes prior to lesson time. Early registration is encouraged.
